Thoughts on the 2012 NFL schedule

 

Hello World,

This blog will primarily be about sports, and I will focus more on the National Football League. Although, I will focus nationally, I will also focus on the local sports teams of San Diego. Today, I will discuss the release of the NFL schedule. Some people will be asking, “Dude, you are so late!,” And, I know I am one day late. But, no need to worry. I will be giving the details of  all the prime time games, this upcoming season in the National Football League.

So here is a list of all the prime time games being played on Monday Night Football, and the National Football League network presenting games on Thursday night, and a few games played outside of the normal Thursday Night games. These games will be played in the upcoming 2012 season of the National Football League.

The two teams playing during the season opener are the Dallas Cowboys versus the New York Giants (Reigning Super Bowl Champions), which will be played at New York(actual location is New Jersey), and will be played Wednesday night. It was originally going to be played on Thursday night, however the National Football League decided to move the schedule date back to Wednesday, since the President of the United States of America will be giving a speech on Thursday night. I predict that the Dallas Cowboys will surprise everyone, and beat the freshly Super Bowl Champions New York Giants, and silence the fans in New York.

On Sunday night, the Denver Broncos will be traveling to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will be an anticipated game, since it will be Peyton Mannings (arguably the best Quarterback to ever play football), debut with his new team the Denver Broncos. I expect Peyton to pull off a victory, and make his former team (Indianapolis Colts)  realize the biggest mistake they made by releasing him.

The Baltimore Ravens will be hosting the Cincinnati Bengals as the first Monday Night Football game being  played in the 2012 season, followed by a double header, where the San Diego “Super” Chargers, travel to the Black Hole of the Oakland Raiders! Both games are divisional games, where I expect the Baltimore Ravens to defend home turf, and have the San Diego Chargers steal a close game in Oakland.

And the game of the week will start a lot sooner in the week then usually. It will be the two historic rival franchises playing each other. none other than the Chicago Bears traveling to play the Green Bay Packers, at the historic cite of Lambeau Field. The Packers are having all the confidence in the world for coming off a 15-1 season, and having beaten the bears for 3 straight years. But, not so fast. The Chicago Bears have finally started to give Jay Cutler the big time receiver he has been begging management to bring him. Where they reunited him with his former teammate in Brandon Marshall (expect a big night from this duo), and bringing in the best back up running back in the league. I expect the Chicago Bears to torch the Green Bay Packers, and just blow them out, in front of a shocked Green Bay Packers team, and fans.

I have only mention less than two weeks of the National Football League schedule, but I will finish the rest of the schedule in a couple of days.

Hello World,

You are probably wondering how you browsed upon this web blog. Well, I’ll tell you. You came across this blog, because of the awesome blog name. Did you forget the blog name already? Let me refresh your mind. The blog name is What Can We Discuss. Yes, that’s the name. It is such an interesting name, because it keeps you asking the same question over, and over again. What can we discuss? I have the perfect topic we can discuss. The topic is…Football! What kind of football? Will I blog about pee wee football, ah no. How about high school? No. Maybe college football? No. Yes, I know. Arena Football….NO. What else but the National Football League. I will be blogging about the National Football League. Why, because it is the most popular sport in the United States of America. How can I make such a claim. Let me backup my statement, with the fact that Monday Night Football was the most watched TV SHOW on network television. The top three shows were in 2011, number one Monday Night Football, followed by American Idol, and in third place Sunday Night Football. Yes, two out of the top three shows were from the result of the National Football League. Clearly, the NFL is beyond interesting.

So now you are asking yourself, “Yeah, the NFL is awesome. But, why should I read this blog, versus bloggers on ESPN, NFL network, and from different prominent sports bloggers?” I have five great reasons to why you need to follow my blog. The number one reason, I have been following the National Football League for over sixteen years. Which indicates that I am a fan of the National Football League. As a fan, you can relate to the blogger. My second reason is that I use to play high school football. Which indicates that I understand the rules of football, and have a background in the sport. The third reason, I am a college student at the University of California San Diego. What does the third reason have to do with anything, nothing at all. I just wanted to mention that I attend the University of California San Diego. My fourth reason is that I live in San Diego, California. Where it is the home of the San Diego Chargers. My fifth reason, whoever loves football should follow this. Why? Because, it will give you a different perspective. You will see a difference between a college students blog, compare to a major corporation run blog. Because, I on one hand have no restrictions. I am able to present the material in raw format. I am not obligated to answer to no one. While bloggers at ESPN are limited to what their employers approve, as well as other larger media outlets. Therefore, with the five reasons I gave, you should follow this blog. And if you really want another reason, remember that the blog name is awesome. What Can We Discuss.
